Video questions

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn recently held a question and answer session via video conferencing with students in a Moroccan University she visited in February. The students, from Al Akhawayn University are studying a course on comparative political systems and Meg took on the role of lecturer for one of their classes.

The focus of the discussion was British democracy and the way our political system works compared with the system in Morocco. The students were particularly interested to talk about the way that constituency boundaries are created in the UK, something which proved to be a topical issue considering the UK’s current Boundary Commission proposals. Meg went on to talk about the role of women in Parliament and Labours efforts to encourage more women to stand for seats, resulting in women being 32% of Labour MPs. The students learnt how Meg serves the constituents of Sheffield Heeley by representing their views in the House of Commons.  The seminar also addressed issues of voters’ regional interests, the role of the British Monarchy and how the British coalition government works.

Meg commented:

“This was a great opportunity to engage students from Morocco in issues relating to the British democratic system, allowing them make comparisons with their own country. It is important that we share our knowledge and experiences with countries that are trying to improve their political systems.”
